Matrix Style Inspiration Featuring Songbird


Songbird has created glasses and animated eyes (video below!) that you absolutely have to check out! Both were made to celebrate this Spring’s Twisted Hunt. If you have no idea what a hunt is don’t fear, we have you covered. The products shown today can be found at the in world store.

Whether you need bloody makeup or a new outfit you’re sure to fall in love with something unique when visiting. If you’re unable to visit in world right now feel free to browse the Marketplace store with 100+ products for sale.


The TruthEyes

These may be the coolest looking eyes I’ve ever played with. Inspired by The Matrix, the green text on the eyes actually scrolls giving it a realistic themed feel. It is definitely a specific and well loved look that is perfect to have in your inventory whether it’s for a themed event or everyday use. As these are mesh eyes they may take a little adjusting depending on your head, however I found it to be a fairly simple process. The Truth Eyes can be found in the Songbird store as the 24th location in the Twisted Hunt. Yes, that means they’re FREE when you find them!

Play the video below to see them in action.

The Basics Of Second Life Hunts

Hunting in Second Life may conjure up the image of virtual big game shooting experiences. While that probably exists on grid, it’s not what we’re talking about today; we’re focusing on shopping events! Second Life hunts are a fun way to collect items for both your avatar and your home. Here are the very basics of hunting events in Second Life.

What Exactly Is A Second Life Hunt?

Imagine if a scavenger hunt, hide and seek, and some Second Life goodies were all shaken up together. The result? A Second Life hunt! You’re given a place to start looking and then you scour the area for the product. Usually the product is boxed in a themed shape such as a little coin, apple, or animal. Once you find the product you activate it (usually by touching or paying) to receive the gift and a hint about the next item to find. Most hunts only run for a set amount of time, so make sure to check the dates before you start!

Hunts can be free or they may have a charge. They may hide all the items in one sim or in locations all over the grid. Each and every hunt is different and appeals to different people. One person may enjoy a smaller hunt with items that aren’t too hard to find while another may prefer spending hours looking for many tricky items.
